But YOU are closing YOUR mind to the things I’m bringing up here.
“Fiction isnt real, you see.”
So you are OK with your kids reading a fictional book about teenage male prostitutes???? As long as it’s fiction....
On many levels, so does the Harry Potter series. It is set in a fictional fantasy universe, but the human lessons are real.
If I were to hand you a Bible right now, could you find one of these stories in under 30 seconds? (Be honest).
I luv Hairy Potty. Every time a new one comes out I rush to the nearest bookstore, pick up a copy and read, or rather try to get through the first two pages, or any two pages at random. And I count the clichés. I must say she (the author) is consistent. In every one of these tomes I have counted 6 or 7 clichés per page. (I don't count the stilted metaphors, but they're there for your enjoyment too.) Ain't nothing like great literature, is there?!
P.S. I read in the paper yesterday that the author is threatening to unleash still more of her graphomaniac output on the world! Hurray!
Audio books are a different experience than reading. It's processed in a different part of the brain and is a bit odd at first, but as you get used to it, it is every bit as enjoyable. It took me a book or so to adapt.
You seem to be really hung up on the whole teenage male prostitute thing. Is there something you want to tell the group?
So you are OK with your kids reading a fictional book about teenage male prostitutes???? Really?

HP glorifies occultism. Occultism is an abomination in God’s eyes
Joseph and the coat, Daniel and the Lion, Shadrich in the furnace.
Man, if that's what you do for entertainment, it must really suck to be you.
Occultism and male prostitution are both abominations in the eyes of God.
Oh, and the villagers demanding that Noah send his male guests out to be raped...
Apparently, two of Mr. Reynolds’ discoveries were ellipses and quotation marks.
What about pulling those tags off mattresses?
I take it you’ve never seen a 500-response Potter thread on this here political forum.
How you managed to miss them is beyond me.
Weren't those Abraham's guests?
And you’re obsessed with them because...
Really you need to get your facts straight. There is NO occultism in the Harry Potter books, there is nothing that even RESEMBLES real world occultism in the Harry Potter books, and the clowns that first started that rumor are LIARS, and the people that perpetuate those lies are DUPES. You’re wrong, your position is not fact based, and all you need to read is the first 3 chapters of the first book to find out that there is no occultism in the series. Magic in Harry Potter is a mutant power, I could rewrite the entire series as an X-Men story with a global search and replace of about a dozen words. It’s not occult, never has been, never will be, and no amount of comparison with teenage male prostitutes (really, you need to seek professional help on that front, it’s not a healthy obsession) will change that simple fact.
I wonder why several B&Ns Ive visited set out a display table of HP books and then fill a table right next to it will serious occultism books?
Let me take a stab at that one. Maybe because bookstores are in the business to, uh, stay with me here, sell more books. Are you familiar with the term ‘impulse buy’?
